The small town Colorado girl who’s obsessed with home and everything that entails! I’m a creative, a decorator, a day dreamer, a huge fan of scones, and I’m passionate about loving where I live and making a home.
I think I may have mentioned before that I really, really love a good stool. There’s just something about them. And heaven knows I’ve done my fair share of makeovers on a stool or two. This girl can’t resist them.
And today’s makeover fits into that same category…
Here’s what she looked like when I started. Very cute, but a little roughed up…
Easy enough to fix though, I just turned her over and added a couple coats of paint…
For this makeover, I used Mushroom by Maison Blanche. I seriously love this color. It’s the perfect creamy/ gray/ taupe. Such a fabulous color and you will definitely see more projects with me using it!
Once the paint dried, and I added a second coat to the entire stool, I grabbed a medium grit sanding block and started distressing the areas that would naturally get chipped…
With the sanding done, I wiped it down and applied a coat of clear wax for protection…
The wax really brings out the color in the paint, and added a very subtle sheen to the stool. I loved the color even more after it was waxed. 😀
Here’s a few beauty shots…
I’m telling you, this neutral paint color is perfect on so many things…
And the dark brown peeking through from the distressing? Perfection!
I may already have another piece of furniture just waiting for it’s time to shine… and the mushroom paint! I can’t wait!
In the meantime though, here are a few other ladies sharing their makeover’s!
